  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson stacked up in loss    Sun Nov 19, 09:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for 26 yards in Week 11 against the Houston Texans and he had just one catch for 13 yards.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson joins dubious list    Sat Nov 11, 10:31 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Peterson is at least a volume Flex play or RB2 against Houston next week in a game that Arizona should be able to stay in for the entire game, but his downside is clear against good defenses when he is playing from behind, and David Johnson could be back in a few weeks, so Peterson's suitability as a contributor in the fantasy playoffs is questionable.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson stifled by Seahawks    Fri Nov 10, 12:21 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried the ball 21 times for 29 yards (1.4 YPC) during the team's 22-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Peterson caught one pass for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Peterson was often met in the backfield. Perhaps next week will be ok against Houston when the Cardinals have a better chance of playing from ahead. David Johnson could be back soon to torpedo Peterson's value for the fantasy playoffs, but he's a still a potential flex on volume alone next week.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson sets NFL record    Sun Nov 5, 10:23 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried a career-high 37 times for 159 yards in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. He had the most carries in NFL history for a running back over the age of 30.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be featured    Fri Nov 3, 11:18 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Feed the beast,' offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. 'It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.'

Footballguys view: Peterson is a borderline RB1 this week with six teams on bye and a very favorable matchup against the 49ers banged up defense.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson logs 48 snaps in debut    Mon Oct 16, 01:01 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

Footballguys view: He played 45 snaps in four games with the Saints in 2017. He clearly wasn't a good fit for New Orleans, but Peterson looked right at home as the lead ball-carrier for the Cardinals on Sunday. So long as the Cardinals can play with a lead, then Peterson has at least RB2 value for fantasy owners.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson coming out for third downs    Thu Oct 12, 11:47 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Peterson has never really been a good third down back and at his age, the reality he is a liability in pass protection. He's the lead back, so he'll get carries, but his age and the general limitations of his body at this stage in his career make him no more than a low-end RB3 against Tampa this weekend.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson lands in Arizona    Tue Oct 10, 11:50 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Peterson has more chance to have fantasy value in Arizona than he did in New Orleans, but we should temper expectations with the reality of the Cardinals running game. Even David Johnson was lackluster as a runner before he went down. David Johnson, Chris Johnson, and Kerwynn Williams combined for barely two yards a carry in their respective stints as the lead back. He needs to get up to 15-20 carries for his effectiveness to peak, but it is questionable that the Cardinals will get him there in many games - no Cardinals back has more than 13 carries in a game this year. Peterson is worth a waiver add to see what happens, but he shouldn't be prioritized over Jerick McKinnon, Aaron Jones, or Elijah McGuire, and maybe not even over Marlon Mack or Matt Breida.

OT Zach Strief (knee) logged a full practice and is listed as questionable.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson back at practice    Fri Sep 29, 09:10 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: This lowers Mark Ingram's ceiling for Week 4, but if the Saints can control the game vs. the Dolphins, Ingram should get the second half carries.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson tweaked knee    Thu Sep 28, 11:27 AM

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) tweaked his knee in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27. However, the injury isn't considered serious, and his absence Thursday was a mix of the knee issue and a veteran's day off.

Footballguys view: As we have said before, Mark Ingram is the workhorse and Alvin Kamara is the third down back. Even if he's healthy, Peterson isn't worth having in your lineups.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson absent    Thu Sep 28, 09:20 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was absent from practice during the portion open to the media Thursday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: He's absent from the scoresheets most Sundays as well. We don't expect him to find much work behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, who should get most of the third down work. Peterson's days of being an auto-start in fantasy lineups is long gone.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson has no problem with coach    Sun Sep 17, 10:09 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson does not have any problems with head coach Sean Payton and the team has no plans of trading or releasing Peterson, according to sources. The team hopes to run the ball more in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Maybe Peterson gets more use if the Saints get goal-to-go situations inside the five or want to run more in an attempt to keep Tom Brady on the sidelines, but if he gets single-digit snaps again this week, it will be time to drop Peterson next week.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson wants more action    Fri Sep 15, 09:20 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he 'didn't sign up for nine snaps,' but he said he and head coach Sean Payton are on the same page.

Footballguys view: Peterson could get more red zone work if the Saints get inside the five and Payton might want to use him to sustain drives to keep Tom Brady on the sidelines this week, but the overall outlook for Peterson is not good.

  Saints | Tough sledding for Adrian Peterson     Sun Aug 27, 12:15 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson rushed six times for 15 yards in a 13-0 preseason win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Just seeing Peterson in the preseason is very rare. He wasn't overwhelmingly bad or good in this contest. Peterson is a speculative 6th/7th pick and he will be motivated in Week 1 against his old team, the Vikings.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson to sit preseason opener    Thu Aug 10, 01:03 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (rest) will not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, August 10, against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: As old as Peterson is, and given he lasted about half a minute last season before getting hurt, it makes sense to rest him as much as possible. Fantasy GMs who lost him last season will approve, but they should be cautioned that Peterson is not what he once was and is in, at best, a committee position. Could he take hold of the starting job? Stranger things have happened, but you don't base your season on an outlier.

  Saints | Naysayers motivate Adrian Peterson    Tue Jul 11, 06:07 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is motivated by those who doubt his age, ability, health, etc. 'I'd be lying to say [the doubt] doesn't [motivate me],' Peterson said. 'You want to do things people say you can't do.'

Footballguys view: Peterson is one of the fiercest competitors in league history. He'll use anything as motivation -- and it will work. The Saints RB situation is going to have some complications. Mark Ingram is no slappy and he should work with Peterson to split carries. Rookie Alvin Kamara is dynamic and could be worked into the mix as well.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson eyes 500 receiving yards    Tue Jul 11, 12:06 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has had more than 400 receiving yards only once in his career, but he is shooting for 500 in 2017.

Footballguys view: Peterson wants to do more as a receiver, and it's unclear how much he'll be used in that capacity with his new team. The Saints have a jam-packed and talented backfield with Peterson, Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara. We should see Peterson and Ingram split carries in some form of RBBC. There will be a split of targets/receptions out of the backfield as well, and that split might also include the elusive Kamara in the mix. As you can see, this is an interesting situation for fantasy owners to navigate.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson to see 150 carries?    Tue Jul 11, 11:14 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is likely on tap for 150 carries, according to Saints color commentator Deuce McAllister. 'If he gets (about 150 carries), he'll get probably 700 to 1,000 yards,' McAllister said. Peterson is keeping his weight between 215 and 219 pounds with 6 percent body fat. Peterson, who has totaled more than 400 receiving yards once, said he'd like to tally 500 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: The Saints backfield is going to be an interesting one for fantasy owners to navigate. Both Peterson and Mark Ingram want to do more as receivers this year and both could be splitting early-down duties. Throw in rookie Alvin Kamara who can be favorably compared to former NFL-er Thomas Jones and you can see the dilemma. The talent is there for all three backs, but there's only one football to go around. Currently, Peterson is the top back from New Orleans coming off the board. He's at RB21 (5.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Saints | Mark Ingram wants to be more productive even with Peterson around    Thu Jun 15, 01:36 PM

Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports Saints RB Mark Ingram wants to be even better than he was during his career-best performance in 2016. Even with Adrian Peterson in the mix, Ingram believes he can improve. "I know my last three years I've had the best three years of my career. I've only been getting better and better, so I feel like any time that I can touch the ball -- carry it, catch it -- I'll be productive and I'm going to keep improving."

Footballguys view: How Peterson is in the mix will be what tells the tale and so far we just have no idea how this will play out. Ingram is currently going as the No. 18 running back off the board, and with an overall ADP of 49, it seems like there are some concerns among Fantasy GMs as well.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson wants five more years    Thu Jun 8, 08:56 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he wants to play until age 37 or 38.

Footballguys view: We want to be the King of England. It's likely neither wish will come true, barring the possibility that Peterson plans on joining a beer-league flag football group or we start working at Medieval Times. Even then, we'd have to start at busboy and work our way up. Peterson looked awful even before his injury last year and while some of that might have been the tragicomedy that passes for a Vikings offensive line, a lot of it was him. Right now he's tracking at an ADP of 26 which seems just a bit rich for us, and 73 overall, which feels the same. In an offense which throws a lot and is an RBBC, we think his impact will be minimal.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon bigger, better in 2017?    Sat May 27, 06:03 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon trained with former teammate Adrian Peterson in Houston during the offseason and weighs 211 pounds, up from 200 a season ago. McKinnon is reportedly not only stronger, but faster as well.

Footballguys view: McKinnon is kind of the forgotten man in the Vikings backfield. With the addition of free agent Latavius Murray and rookie Dalvin Cook, McKinnon will have more competition for touches. We'll see how this RBBC shakes out in training camp, but most expect Cook to emerge as the leader at some time this season.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson remains confident    Tue May 2, 02:41 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) believes he has 'a lot of years left' in the NFL. Peterson is 32 years old and is entering his 11th season.

Footballguys view: We don't doubt Peterson's confidence, but at some point even he will begin showing more and more signs of wear. The Saints should be using a three-headed RBBC this year with Mark Ingram as the lead back, Peterson as the battering ram and rookie Alvin Kamara as the receiving back. That split could help keep Peterson fresh, but we're not so sure about the 'a lot of years left' thing.

  Saints | Saints using 'three-headed monster' at RB?    Mon May 1, 10:30 PM

The New Orleans Saints' plan for the upcoming season is 'likely to recreate their 2009 and 2011 potent backfield attack' when they implemented a 'three-headed monster' at running back. This came to fruition when they drafted RB Alvin Kamara, who is a 'prototypical third-down back' to complement RBs Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson. Kamara could be in line to play a 'Reggie Bush/Darren Sproles-type role.'

Footballguys view: The Saints have so much talent at the running back position, it's falling out of Sean Payton's pockets. Ingram should be the lead back with Peterson playing a battering ram role. Kamara could easily be a full-time starter in the NFL, but he's such a great receiver (especially compared to the other two) the Saints should get him on the field in that way as much as possible. It's good news for the Saints, but a three-headed RBBC is difficult to navigate for fantasy owners.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson will have clear role    Tue Apr 25, 06:36 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson will blend well with fellow RB Mark Ingram and will have a clear role in the Saints' offense, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Tim Hightower got almost as many touches as Ingram from Week 8 on last year, and Peterson's pay is similar to Ingram, so it's not a stretch to see a close to 50/50 committee with a receiving back like Travaris Cadet taking some touches. There won't be an RB1 in this backfield without injury, but Ingram was efficient enough in the second half of the season be an RB2 in close to a 50/50 committee last year. His ADP will be falling either way.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson terms    Tue Apr 25, 08:41 AM

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson landed a two-year, $7 million deal. He's guaranteed $3.5 million in 2017, which includes a $1 million salary and a $2.5 million signing bonus. The 2018 compensation is $3.5 million, and none of which is guaranteed. It includes $2.4 million in total roster bonuses (which includes a $750,000 roster bonus earned on third day of free agency plus $1.65 million in per-game roster bonuses), a $1.05 million salary and a $50,000 workout bonus.

Footballguys view: The Saints will use Peterson and Mark Ingram in a RBBC. Ingram should be the lead back, and he'll also be the receiving back as Peterson isn't much of an option on passing downs. We could see Peterson getting 200 or so touches this year as part of this committee. Last year it was Tim Hightower behind Ingram, and he ended up touching the ball 155 times.

  Saints | Mark Ingram will be the starter     Mon Apr 24, 04:56 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram would still be the lead running back even if free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) signed with the Saints, according to The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

Footballguys view: That makes sense, but if Peterson is added he's going to have a large role as well. The Saints rushed the ball over 400 times last year, and they could easily split those carries between Ingram and Peterson. Ingram would continue as a pass catching back as Peterson doesn't excel in that area.

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is coming close to a deal with the New Orleans Saints that would pay him $3 million this year, according to sources. The deal is not done, but it is looking optimistic.

Footballguys view: Peterson will split time with Mark Ingram if/when added. He's not a receiving back, so Ingram should have more value in PPR leagues.

  Giants | NYG still interested in veteran running backs    Sun Apr 23, 09:49 AM

The New York Giants are one of several teams continuing to keep close tabs on free-agent RBs LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) and Adrian Peterson (Vikings), in the hopes that their salary demands will go down prior to the draft.

Footballguys view: We like the upside of second-year pro Paul Perkins, but the team could see him as more of a speedy change-of-pace back only. The interest in a two-down banger like Blount of Peterson shows they will likely be using a RBBC in 2017. Stay tuned here. With the 2017 NFL draft coming up this week, we could see the Giants add a big back to the mix.

  NFL | Adrian Peterson looks explosive    Thu Apr 13, 10:39 AM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) impressed the New England Patriots, appearing fast and explosive in a recent workout. The New Orleans Saints could seek to sign him before the NFL draft if the financials can be worked out.

Footballguys view: There are two big questions here. First, will he play as explosive as he appears (assuming this isn't just his agent blowing smoke)? Second, is his price reasonable. Peterson sees himself as a top running back even at his age. He has wanted money commensurate with that. We aren't sold on him enough to write off on that, but it isn't our money.

After a career high 1,161 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, Blount likely wants top dollar...a mark the Patriots are unlikely to pay.
